← Myth-Making: Say It Often, People Will Believe

A classic example being Carl Sagan. Because Johnny Carson often used the phrase billions and billions when he did his impersonation of Sagan, the phrase was attributed to him despite his own denials to the contrary (as I read just last night in the first chapter of.......Billions and Billions).

Coincidence? Yep.
